29 April 2013 – Speed Scene Live and Frank Hawley Drag Racing School and Friends

Hey guys! Lot’s going on now that spring is here! As I mentioned before, I am now the latest co-host of Speed Scene Live Internet television show which airs every Tuesday night at 6 o’clock pm PST. This Tuesday April 30th I will be on the show talking about my experience in Las Vegas racing and participating in the Frank Hawley Drag Racing School. For those of you who haven’t heard of Frank Hawley, he is known as one of the best instructors in the drag racing community. He teaches his students lessons not only of driving and racing, but of life.

I had the opportunity to attend the class thanks to my good friend and fellow racer, Tony Rowe of Tony Rowe Enterprises, and thanks to him and Frank, I now have my NHRA Super Comp license. I got to drive one of the super comp dragsters in the school, my fastest pass being 8.461 ET at 156 mph. What a rush! The launch on a car like that was so quick that it took me a few runs to get the hang of it. But what’s more amazing is the lessons that Frank teaches about the mind, body and how you can use them to your advantage. Frank is full of stories about professional drivers that have been in the business for years. It was an experience I will always remember, and I can’t wait for more people to experience it for themselves!! Please go to for more information about class times and dates. Also look for a detailed story about the school in an upcoming issue of MoparMax Magazine at
